Overview

The Freedom Stairs The Story of Adam Lowry Rankin, Underground Railroad Conductor by Marilyn Seguin ISBN 9780828320849

Suppose your sleep was disturbed once or twice a week by a soft rap on the door? Perhaps you’d have to dress quickly before running to the barn to saddle the horses? Then you might have to ride ten miles or so on horseback, in the dark, with a trembling soul clinging to your back—or perhaps you’d be hiding several souls in the wagon you were driving, hoping not to hear the sound of pursuing horses? What excuse could you give for being out alone in the dark?
Marilyn Seguin relied on Adam Rankin’s autobiography to tell the story of an Ohio family’s role in the under ground railroad. The Rankin family helped more than 2,000 slaves to freedom. One of the fugitives was an inspiration for Eliza in Harriet Beecher Stowe’s, Uncle Tom’s Cabin.
